Room to Read

Susanne Reich  started Alp-n-Rock as a vehicle to send girls to school and to create lasting change through the gift of an education.  We strive every day to create timeless clothing, made with love and attention to detail from the finest fabrics, that provide joy for those who purchase them and provide funds for the girls’ scholarship program through Room to Read.

“We envision a world in which all children can pursue a quality education that enables them to reach their full potential and contribute to their communities and the world.” Room to Read is built on the foundation that world change starts with educated children. $300 can keep a girl in school for a year, and our mission is to send 1,000 girls to school. We donate up to 10% of profits to Room to Read and also give the option to make an individual donation with your order.

Room to Read “helps girls to discover their own strength, advocate for themselves, and create a new and different path from the one that might be forced upon them. Our program enables girls to learn and practice life skills through classes, workshops and extracurricular activities.”

“Donations provide need-based material support for school costs such as tuition fees, uniforms, bus fare/bicycles and exam preparation services. This way, parents don’t have to choose between putting food on the table and educating their children.”
